Investing in fixed deposits is popular among senior citizens as it offers liquidity and ensures interest income periodically. As the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has kept the key repo rate unchanged at  4 percent for over a year now, most banks have reduced interest rates on FDs. Despite falling interest rates, smaller private and small finance banks offer interest rates of up to 7.30 percent on three-year FDs for senior citizens, as per data compiled by  BankBazaar . Here are the top five banks offering the best interest rates on three-year FDs for senior citizens.
